Big hand and mucho kudos to all WP1.3 developers (I use this as an all encompassing term for contributors of any stature).
For fun I downloaded last night's build, installed to a new sub-domain in about 6 minutes (took that long partly due to a muchie break), configured it in about 3 minutes, then, took the 1.3 modified (and highly controversial - snigger) Kubrick theme, plonked it into the /themes directory and just switched it on. Magic!
I know this is still in Alpha. And that people have found issues, bugs, and other such mishaps. But I do want to say thank-you for the great efforts to date and makes me have the same fervor as there currently is around the SFX (Spread FirefoX) campaign.
Keep up the top work and long live WordPress!
